20's shouldn't even be considered for a car unless you're goal is to simply "cruise" the strip looking donk.

Lighter, better performance is the key to the M3 and real performance machines everywhere!
Even this has gone wrong. The reason big wheels became cool is because they were associated with higher performance. There was a time when 17's and 18's were considered "big". Now they are not. For most cars, 17 and 18" wheels will give the best performance. 18" wheels can be designed to fit up to 380mm brakes. For bigger cars like the M5/6, I can see 19's being good.

As I said, the look that was once associated with performance, and thus cool, now actually hurts performance. Why, then, is it still considered cool?
